I think young people today don't watch old movies. As simple as that. I grew up watching the Late Show and b&w movies from long before my time, but I grew up before the computer age. I just don't think younger people have an attention span long enough to watch movies that aren't big cartoon action flicks. Who is going to look up old movies to stream on their computers? Look at what's being made today - date movies full of CGI. Before CGI, movies were more character driven and actors' performances were more important and their careers more memorable. I doubt if anyone born 25 years from now will be familiar with a single movie star from 2011. It is a part of culture and there used to be a lot of beautiful movies made. R3 isn't going to suffer in any way from not knowing who Burt Lancaster is, but he/she just lost his/her place in a particular cultural community.

r83, opinions are like assholes. Everybody's got one.

YOUR opinion as to the cultural relevancy of performers or entertainers aso opposed to other historical figures is simply that, one asshole's opinion.

People know who the entertainers Jenny Lind and John Wilkes Booth and Sarah Bernhardt and Annie Oakley and Evelyn Nesbit were and those are just a scant few from the 19th and early 20th century who are remembered. Each had a cultural and historical relevancy of a different kind but all were considered "actors" and performers.

ONLY TIME WILL TELL which actors and entertainers from the 20th century remain in the cultural lexicon. Burt Lancaster was a very famous man in his time. MOST posters here do know who he was. He has a permanent place in Hollywood history, along with many others who may or may NOT be "remembered."

Burt always hired gay men to work as his assistants. He said he did that because gay men protected him. They kept his secrets, understood his position and were very loyal. There's a scene in A Child Is Waiting (with Judy Garland), where Burt walks across the room at the end of the scene. He really pings BIG time! He was so beautiful in The Swimmer.

Burt was quoted as saying "his male assistants probably told their pals braggingly, that they were sleeping with him." Its said he as a great friendly (as has been widely reported) too. Despite the bi-sexual rumors that hounded him for years, in 1985, Burt did an Aids prevention commercial.

He was great pals with Rock Hudson. Many gay & bi-sexual men have said they saw him at Rock Hudson's all gay male orgies (and that he allegedly participated...mostly as a bottom), in the 1960's.

Could someone please start a thread on Charlton Heston? I've always wondered if he was bi.

Here's a deal. When someone mentions some new star whom I have never heard of, I will do as I always do, simply look him up and realize that there are a great many new stars whom I don't know about. And, accordingly, not criticize anyone for not spelling out for me who this person is.

Perhaps people like r3 could do the same when it comes to people who were stars before they were born.

This thread reminds me of another cultural illiterate: Suzanne Vega.

That "dit dit duh duh dit dit duh duh" song by Vega contains these lines:

I open up the paper There's a story Of an actor

Who had died While he was drinking He was no one I had heard of

The actor who was "no one" she had "heard of" was said to be William Holden. William Holden, star of "Sunset Boulevard", "Stalag 17 (he won the Academy Award for Best Actor):, "Sabrina", "Picnic", "Born Yesterday", "The Bridge on the River Kwai", "The Country Girl", "Golden Boy", "The Wild Bunch" and "Network." Suzanne Vega is quite full of her own artistic importance, but she must have been quite the culturally illiterate cluck if she had never heard of William Holden.

Mmmmm, William Holden (r161), I want to spank both William Holden and Burt Lancaster in some kind of uniform, too bad they've gone to that big Hollywood in the sky. Is it true that Jackie O and William Holden had a love child in the 1950s?

"Not knowing about classic cinematic actors does not make one culturally illiterate."

People who don't have even a general knowledge about legendary or classic actors tend not to know much about a lot of other things. I would guess that poor R9 has never heard of Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Spencer Tracy, James Dean, Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, the Marx Brothers, or Judy Garland, either.

Completely disagree, R166. While there may or may not be a higher incidence of correlation among "doesn't know who Burt Lancaster is," "young person who visits Datalounge," and "is culturally illiterate," your generalization is invalid. More specifically, the generalization does not merit such overreactions.

Outside of younger ones on this website, there are plenty of brilliant people of ALL ages who choose to focus on one or two studies or skills, yet barely have a clue about the pop culture history of fields other than their own.

Oh blow it out your ass, you dumb cunt. Your comparison is idiotic. The "great actors and actresses" of that era weren't exactly household names. Actors in that era did theater and nothing else.

You're presuming that she's writing autobiographically. Although she did say "Luka" was based in fact, it's still a bit of a leap to think that every song sung by every singer in the first person singular is autobiographical.

You really are a clueless fucktard. I don't think there was anybody who could accurately be called "pop cultural figures" back then. There were great writers and artists and minds, but "pop cultural figures?" No, I don't really think there was an equivalent to Madonna and Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber back then. And there sure wasn't an equivalent to to Burt Lancaster; actors in those days were very different from the ones in films. There were no films back then. Bet you didn't know that, did you? No, of course you don't.

He was a staunch democrat, Civil Rights campaigner and did AIDS awareness ads long before anybody else in Hollywood did them. He also pushed himself as an actor and worked on some interesting movies.
